  TPI Overview

The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, Office of Violence Prevention partners with community residents and stakeholders to implement the Trauma Prevention Initiative (TPI) to reduce violence-related injuries and deaths. Launched in 2015, TPI aligns County services and initiatives to build a comprehensive, place-based approach through innovative programs, policies, and partnerships. TPI supports a community-driven approach to public safety that is survivor centered, and empowers community leadership, coordinating across sectors to build infrastructure for prevention and well-being in the county’s highest need communities. TPI is initially focused on South Los Angeles and building a place-based model that can be scaled to additional communities.

Funded Prevention Strategies

Community stakeholders prioritize strategies that build leadership capacity and promote dialogue and healing. Community engagement in TPI communities builds local leadership, promotes positive identity, and develops priorities to guide violence prevention work through Community Action for Peace (CAP) groups, community events and summits. Community engagement also provides avenues for other departments and initiatives to get involved in the communities.

The Long Beach Emergency Rental Assistance Program (LB-ERAP) is designed to assist landlords and income-eligible tenants (renters) who have experienced financial loss or hardship due to COVID-19 through rental assistance.
LB-ERAP is part of the Long Beach Recovery Act. The federal Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021 provides the funding to support the program, which is designed to implement the tenant protection laws enacted by the State of California (SB 91). The program is established to provide assistance exclusively to landlords and tenants in Long Beach and is separate from the State’s rental assistance program. Applicants should not apply to the State program if the unit for which they are seeking assistance is located in the City.
LB-ERAP will help income-eligible tenants pay rent and utilities, both for past due bills and future payments. The program will prioritize assisting lower-income tenants who have been unemployed for 90 days or more and who are at risk of housing instability.

The Reach Team: Children Exposed to Violence

When violence occurs in a community, children are often witnesses to the event and its aftermath. The impact of violence exposure is associated with learning, health, emotional and behavior issues immediately following the event and also later in life. Early intervention and emotional and social support are key in preventing and healing symptoms of trauma.
